Hi all
I have just had the annual service done on my Civ and all was ok but I asked them to change the battery on my spare key as it wasn't working.
They came back and told me I needed a new key would I like them to order me one and that it would cost me £184[smilie=shocked.gif] I declined the offer.
As I said this is my spare key and it is only ever used when I take the car for service.
Can a new key be purchased anywhere else or am I stuffed?[smilie=notimpresse:
Any help with this would be much appreciated.
Cheers John

I've looked around at getting a spare key and the cheapest place I found was a small local lock smith, he said he could get me a new key, cut and program it for £140. My nearest Honda dealer wants £218.

Update.
I purchased a new battery for £1.16 and the key works again!!!!
I am disgusted that they told me I needed a new key at the cost of £184. How many people would have fallen for that one?[smilie=think2.gif] Glad I told them to stuff it.
